[IP] Type2 and lifestyle...(was...another DUH! comment (let's change title)

Ryan said,
> ...because the disease is become more prevalent...but rather, the lifestyle 
that leads to Type-2 diabetes is more prevalent.  Think about this:  Prior to 
the industrial revolution, EVERYTHING that anyone needed or wanted took 

Type 2 is very prevalent in the US Indian population and in other people who 
have adopted modern culture and lifestyle.  It was not considered a problem 
when there was no access to TV, computers, prepared foods, and soda pop.

On the other hand, medical care and diagnosis was, for the most part, 
nonexistent. These population groups were seldom accurately counted, if at 
all, in prevalence or morbidity, and mortality rates.

Just another thought on the topic.
